Can Christians serve in the military with
a clear conscience? Does God speak to soldiers today, directing their
battles, as in Old Testament times? Is a war against Iraq a just war? In the
face of genocide by a ruler against his own people, does the traditional
Christian doctrine of just war have much validity?
These are all questions that fascinate me, and I seek out some answers in
the following commentaries.
